The 391st Fighter Squadron, Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, participates in Red Flag 20-3 at Nellis AFB, Nevada.

Tactical aircraft maintainers and pilots assigned to the 391st FS prepare F-15E Strike Eagle fighter jets to take part in training sorties during Red Flag. This exercise is a contested combat training exercise involving the air forces of the United States and its allies.
